“I directed the transfer of the suspicious container No. TGHU 60143419 to the enforcement unit where it was examined and found to contain 150 rounds of live ammunition and 28 pieces of various sizes of jack knives,” he said.
The bag, he said, contained 149 rounds of 38 MM calibre live ammunition, 92 rounds of 9 MM calibre live ammunition, two rounds 7.62 MM calibre and 11 cartridges of live ammunition.
The comptroller said other items found in the bag were 12 expended empty shells of various calibres and an empty magazine.
Abdullahi said both the vehicle and the exhibits were currently at the enforcement unit of the command pending further investigation.
This development comes two days after customs announced that an Onitsha bound vehicle laden with live ammunition was intercepted in Niger state.
The poor control of arms and ammunition has fueled insecurity in the country. Nigeria is currently battling high wave of killings.
